There doesn't seem to be a "Current Series" widget for the Midsummer Classic.  Hmmm. 

I guess I'll improvise:

CURRENT SERIES

This is the 81st Major League Baseball All Star Game.

American League: 38 wins

National League: 40 wins

Ties: 2

Current streak: The AL has won the last 12 All Star Games (not including the Shruggity* Game in 2002)
